This Factsheet is intended to inform law-makers about legal options to minimise damage to the environment when forests are converted to agriculture, mining or infrastructure, and the risks that may occur when laws do not sufficiently consider the environment. It also provides questions to guide law-makers through processes of law reform to improve the protection of forests.
In addition to this Factsheet, the Toolkit consists of the following parts:
- Factsheet 1 - Allocation of land
- Factsheet 2 - Clearing forested land
- Factsheet 3 - Timber from forest conversion
- Factsheet 5 - Communities’ rights
